The surrounding of the bakery is just magic. Next to the cemetery and the waterwheel. The bakery has it's own charm. I can recommend the brioche :-)

This extremely OLD SCHOOL bakery where they mill and grind their own flour to make exceedingly tasty baked treats. The smell of sweet baked bread will lure you into their cramped, spartan work area, and it is definitely worth a few Euros to pick up...More

Old bakery, where in addition to being able to buy different types of bread, you can also see how they produce it. It was an interesting experience, even though we were not fans.

This is a great place to get the most freshly made bread. The rye is most popular but we very much preferred the sweet white. Not a place to sit but perfect for grabbing a piece and continuing on your wall through the monastery.
